Greg Dworkin reports on the backlash that Trump earned, and brings us some fun polls that we have earned. Karma rains down on Trumpism far and wide. Everywhere, voters send a message to frothing cauldron of Republicans. Young, Democratic, women are getting out and voting for young Democratic women. Trump’s core will remain, as long as Trump trolls, and they’re racist. Some tweets aren’t aging well. Isn’t it time Trump voters reach out to us? For Donald Trump Jr. there’s always tomorrow.
Joan McCarter joins David Waldman to share both schadenfreude und mitfreude. Some Democrats won with little help, so congratulations? Did Lee Carter not knock on enough doors, or was he too much of a lefty?
Does the House tax bill satisfy Senate rules for avoiding a filibuster?
Trump’s Obamacare sabotage backfires, which means free health care for many! Word must be getting around, as there is a record number of early signups. Still, more than 30 million Americans are in danger of losing healthcare, so the war is not over. Republicans don’t worry about voters when donors are about to quit paying them. Having a future depends on taking care of kids now, but House Republicans pass a sham Children’s Health Bill, putting 9 million kids lives in jeopardy.
